million per year to the school district plus $20 million to pre-k for all, it has roughly been about $30 million per year, so there has been about $10 million deferred over the last four years, meaning roughly $39 million has not been paid to the schools. according to prop h, that money is supposed to be paid back in 2015 at the end of the prop. h funding. . my hope is it is revised by the education community. until that time, if we have additional surplus funds or other types of resources, we should be paying some of that back right now and not wait until 2015 given the dire economic crisis within the school district. that is some of the questions we were to be asking to money from the comptroller's office. -- monique from the comptroller's office. we will wait until she arrives. i would like to invite members of the public, not community groups, and teachers. i will ask the first couple of speakers to be the representatives from the youth commission. we have the president and vice president, so welcome. >> hello. good afternoon. the use commission heard this hearing on june 18 and we s

that ethics are at the core of our educational system starting from pre-k. and i think in terms of strengthening laws here in the city, we need to look at a stronger, more kind of law-based, educationally-based ethics system that really, truly is around enforcement. and not what we witnessed in the past, which is somewhat of a circus. i think violating ethical laws in our city, there needs to be real punishments that make sense, but i think we need to strengthen those laws aggressive and to look to our educational institutions in order to make it a more concrete department in our city. >> thank you. miss johnson? >> i still -- the sunshine ordinance task force refers violation of the open government laws to the ethics commission between 2004 and 2011, we had referred -- i was on it ÷ cases went to them. and they haven't heard -- they have only heard one out of those cases. they found a violation and they requested that the mayor remove the president of the library commission. so we need an ethics commission that is willing to enforce our laws. here in san francisco, they
